Enh shaman: Which racial is best in legion?

6 posts in this topic

With the new expansion coming up and numerous class changes, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to swap from Troll to orc, because orc racials sync up with the cooldowns of the new Legion enhancement shaman better than the troll racial. I also thought that with Ascendance being an optional talent (Lets face it, it's not nearly as good as landslide is) the 3-min burst is no longer chained up with anything other than spirit wolves at the beginning of a fight. Those obviously aren't the only reasons why you would roll troll (15% haste is just straight up over powered when your classes best PVE stat is haste), but I was also wondering if haste was the best stat to have in legion as well?

The difference between racials in PvE is small to meaningless. In Legion it's even smaller than before. So if you are a not a Mythic Bleeding Edge raider from World-20, there's no meaningful change in output - play whatever race you like.

Do spirit wolves count as pets for the 1% damage increase from orcs?

According to wowwiki, it doesn't.

Ability warrior warcry
  • Command
  • Racial Passive
     
  • Damage dealt by Death Knight, Hunter and Warlock pets increased by 1%.

Every racial has it's benefits, ti comes down to what you really want to play.  

Pandas - Double food buff,  extra racial CC (plus the bonus xp makes leveling faster) 

Tauren - Increased Crits, stomp which stuns enemies, and a small nature resist buff. 

Troll - has the haste boost and enhanced regen properties. 

Goblin - has increased haste as well 

 

I personnaly like Dwarves myself, though you were asking about horde.  The extra damage reduction cd with stone form is great as a dps or a healer.

Depending on how the stat weight changes once Legion hits and how things are buffed/nerffed in weeks after, the haste buff may be your best option (if it truly matters and you are pushing mythic content).  But who doesn't like a little angry goblin running around smacking things though....

      Hey everyone, new here.
      I just got done with Normal Nighthold with my guild and my DPS.. well sucks. Can anyone look at my logs and see what's up? Maybe a few pointers?
      Thank you!

      So I have a pretty solid ilvl that it feels like I'm underperforming for.  On movement fights, or when I get a streak of proc, I tend to drop buffs, which I'm working on.  I was hoping I could get some pointers for things I should focus on beyond that.

      Hello all,
      I don't know where else to go for help.  I've been struggling with enhance since the changes in 7.1.5.  Originally I thought it was a gear issue because I was performing okay on some fights in Heroic NH, but as I've gotten more gear over the past week, my numbers haven't gone up.  Here are the logs from my raid tonight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/N8P9vaGYHCFbmtDA#type=damage-done&boss=-2&difficulty=0
      I had been using Windsong and Overcharge last week, but noticed that it was just not working out, so when I swapped to Tempest instead, my numbers were about the same, so I've been using Windsong, Tempest, and FoA, like the  Wordup guide says.  Here's a link to my Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Arthas/Donlionheart/advanced
      I've run a few sims, but I'm new to sims and I'm not sure I'm inputting the data right, so it's not worth mentioning the outcomes.  Basically, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I tested out the Hot Hands talent on the dummy tonight after raid, and I did a Windsong test too, and for some reason, they were withing 10k of one another, with Hot Hands coming out on top.  Windsong seemed to give me a bigger opening burst, but I was higher more often and for longer with Hot Hands, though by the time I stopped after 4 minutes for each, they were so close it was barely worth mentioning.  Any advice is welcome, thanks.

      P.S. I'm also using Chesder's (from MMO Champion) TellMeWhen strings, so maybe there's a problem with those.  If anyone has WeakAuras strings to recommend, or different TMW strings, let me know.  I used to use WeakAuras from another Shaman (a girl, I think the name was Corixa, but she doesn't make them anymore), and moved to TMW when a friend had some good strings.  Thank you.

      I know Unleash Doom was recommended as the second golden talent before getting Doom Vortex, but since Vortex just got buffed, and I am also using the Overcharge and Hot Hand talent; Is Vortex better to grab first now? Especially due to it proccing off Overcharged lightning bolts and the increased Lava Lash damage on the way down to it.

      Hello everyone.
      I was wondering if I should change my rotation to include Frostbrand, just to keep all 3 of the Twisting Nether Buffs up at all times or if the 1.5% more Damage are not worth it.
      Before 7.1.5 it was obviously no problem to keep up all buffs, due to Hailstorm but now I have no good way to get the Frost Part. Am I missing something?
       
      Thanks in Advance for you help.
